We did the manatee tour plus snorkeling. It was an amazing experience. The captain Bill was very insightful and friendly and our swim guide Missy was very helpful. This was the highlight of our 6 days in Florida. Money well spent.

Shellie and Brian were a joy to be with during our excursion. Shellie did a great job making sure we all got a turn with the manatees. It was a wonderful time and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Chris and Brian were excellent guides. We traveled with 4 kids between ages 5 and 14 and the kids loved the experience. Brian and Chris were knowledgeable and respectful the entire trip. They even served hot chocalate on a cold afternoon dive. Thanks

Great time. We were really swimming just a few feet away from manatees. And our boat Captain made our day with a trip full of jokes and laugh. Very friendly and professional team!

I did not feel rushed and the tour actually lasted longer than scheduled. The guides are really knowledgeable about the area so we were taken to all sorts of books and crannies.
